For teenagers it has become the theme for 2008/09: Knife Crime. There was a hope that it wouldn’t come to Thurrock but it is clear that it has truly arrived. The weekend of June 20/21 saw several stabbing incidents around the borough.
The Thurrock Youth Cabinet have organised a conference on July 16th where 150 students across the borough will come together for a major examination of the lethal dangers of knife crime.
YourThurrock spoke to several members of the Youth Cabinet about the plans for July 16th at the Culver Centre, South Ockendon.
The Youth Cabinet are very grateful to the Park Inn, North Stifford for sponsoring the event.
